DAZZLING DAMASK

Want to project instant luxury at your next party? Take a classic damask pattern and coat it in shiny silver or gold – a metallic sheen has a way of making everything seem more special. Then add ravishing calligraphy.

Designed with exactly these kinds of opulent details, Michelle-Lee and Justin’s invitation for their dressy wedding at The Breakers Palm Beach is the embodiment of sophistication. Needless to say, I recommend the look to anyone craving a touch of old-world splendor, even if the storied hotel isn’t a part of your plan. See our complete collection of invitations inspired by the baroque architecture of The Breakers here.

I’ve been lucky enough to visit The Breakers and be amazed by its formal splendor in person – in fact, I’m wishing I could go back there right now! In the meantime, we can all get a little taste of that opulence in this week’s Get the Look, filled with a range of damask-inspired pieces. Also in this issue: special guest and accessories guru Brooke Jaffe of Bloomingdale’s lets us in on the latest fun fashions for summer. Plus, don’t miss the breathtaking (and mouth-watering) sweets Connie Dos Santos of Connie Cupcake made exclusively for us using our invitations as inspiration. As the saying goes, it’s the little details that count!
